“My favorite part of my job is getting to know the resident and redirecting them when they get frustrated or have a bad day. I love new challenges and working with my team to overcome them. 
I enjoy learning, and Sunrise provides great training.  I can learn a lot from the residents, their families and my peers. 

When I am not in school or studying for my RN program, I enjoy dancing, hiking, swimming and exercising.”

“My favorite part of my job at Sunrise is the knowledge that I’m contributing to the overall wellness of our residents.  I enjoy interacting with them each day and giving their families peace of mind by letting them know their loved ones are taking their medications.

“Before I came to work at Sunrise, I owned and operated a small Mexican food restaurant.  
I really enjoy my coworkers and working under the leadership team.  I think it is important to genuinely like the people with whom you work.  I enjoy learning about the residents, their preferences, what makes them smile and their backgrounds.  I can say I have fun at work because cooking is my art. 

In my free time, I enjoy trying new foods so I can learn new recipes.  I also enjoy fine dining and spending time with family.”
